9th wonder started off in cool edit and Fruity loops. 9th transitioned to MPC 2500 and Maschine currently...the reason he was able to do that was because he understands how to make beats. When you are experienced you can use anything...at that point it's just a matter of finding the tools that work best for your workflow. These music tools all produce the same result...it all depends on the user ...and how they rock it. If anything...the FLs , Serato Studio...etc are designed to make your workflow more efficient. So you can talk Dilla without owning an MPC, because we know it wasn't the MPC that made the beats, but the brain behind it... (Lol and this was only a few seconds into your video...right when I saw that Dilla comment I had to say something...)

It’s soo cool that your talking about psychology and the locus of control and how we should focus on skills instead of our gear or plugins instead also I think it’s important to focus on pushing your self to learn and experiment and gain a solid skill set before forcing your self to focus on output of beats also explaining the proper path of learning is something alot of us should understand I spent so much time trying to learn all these vague skills from TRshow but couldn’t retain them to actually make it apart of my skill set this is why I find myself going back to your course time and time again because it’s these core principles that actually stick with me when making beats I’m much more interested in the why behind production decisions instead the how to’s another excellent vid navie senpai hahah

Madlib has been very open the last few years that he's been making beats on an iPad. I imagine he uses techniques he learned from Dilla. It all comes from within. The tools are just how you convert what's inside to something that is sharable outside. This video contains great advice.

great video. i still have my SP-303 but have been using FL studio since Fruityloops 2.0. i was once told along time ago "its not the gear, its the ear". along with the video about how five producers put their d*ck in a beat before it gets to an artist being the reason why hip hop has basically been stagnating for years, im subscribing to your channel bro. i sincerely hope other people try new stuff and dont be scared to put it out there. if the worst that can happen is some one on the internet says your beats are wack then so what. my beats might not be commercially or economically viable but i do it for the love of it and have a regular job to fund my adventure. navie d is takin' back the streets!

Between some fundamental concepts and ideas, to the more intermediate breakdowns and techniques, there's been personal growth that's helped tons. The confidence established has created a work flow that's been coming in chapters, but a pace that's been helping with a myriad of styles and structures. From the outside, in - your time and effort is much appreciated. Thank you. 🤲

Thanks to you i started to emulate other beats i wanted to make and made sure i understood why the producer of the song did what they did. Then i added my own twist to it. Now i am making my own melodies and drum patterns all in a matter of a 1 ½ month. Everything is one step at a time while being confident in failing. Didn’t really bother to buy plug-ins bc Logic has good ones. Thanks for you drum kit too !

this video actually motivated me to stop what I was doing and make a beat to see what I really know about the fundamentals. I don't really post my beats much or anything like that but I make beats to satisfy myself - not as a job. With that said I always try to take as much control as I can, not because I want to impress someone else or to make money, but because I owe it to myself to make the best beats I can, to express myself how I want. Thanks for this.

the locus one is tricky. surely the inspiration and knowledge comes all from your personal experience and not from the gear you use, but there's just certain types of gear i don't wanna miss anymore. like bitwig's modulation system, compressors that visualize the gain reduction curve, EQs with big xy pads instead of knobs etc. and just like that an mpc can help with composing in a certain style. i wouldn't say it's required, but just reasonable. i also make different types of melodies when i compose with a keyboard instead of the piano roll, just because it inspires in a different way. so buying gear can make sense if you actually know what you wanna do with it and why it will help

This video is honestly so needed in the current culture. Honestly, most of it is just stuff I was taught during counselling. This was before I was interested in music making, and I was sent there for school since I was slacking on all of my classes. But I stayed with them because the point of the counselling sessions was about how to LEARN, and not how to do school. This video is just like that experience, cause the video isn't even about how to make beats, its about how to learn. This is a mindset you apply to learning ANY new skill. Heck, with the rubix cube example? Most of what we ACTUALLY spent counselling on was just my counsellor teaching me how to solve a rubix cube. Not through a step by step process, but with how to approach the scenario, what to look for, what patterns I want to create with it, how I can solve any rubix cube pattern. Cause he was showing me what to look for when you learn a new skill. Right now culture seems to facilitate the opposite mindset where tools, grinding without experimentation, and following shit through a step-by-step process are the ways to succeed. But no, you become better by experimenting and trying new things, seeing what works, and knowing what made them work. And sometimes people treat youtube tutorials like the "rules of art", like that one spongebob episode where squidward is teaching spongebob how to be an artist. Any form of self expression can't just be copied from 1 to 1.

For the point number 1, there’s a bunch of options in DAWs nowadays to achieve what you are looking for. I’m a Reason user and within the DAW, the regroove mixer is giving you the option the recreate the classic MPC swing, there’s even a folder of all the MPC-60 swingset. That’s why I moved on from my MPC in the early 2000s, even back then, daws were more advanced than the hardware and you could achieve so much more in your production. So many times people thought I made a beat on my mpc while I made it in Reason, just because of how a MPC should sound compared to a software

I think the key is that you have to know whatever system you are using well enough that the program or hardware gets out of the way and lets you just flow with your creativity. This is the same with any creative endeavor. Once you know one system then you will always have a handle on the next upgrade model or program update pretty seamlessly where you simply have to learn how the new functions it adds works and incorporate that into your workflow. I used Reason and found it fairly intuitive but I struggle with MPCs, it is all because of the differences in workflow and not knowing the instrument.

You're right Navie..... especially speaking on your 1st advice. Whether you are using state of the art equipment and plugins or just a cheap laptop with GarageBand, it's ultimately your own creativity and perseverance to learn all aspects of the craft that makes you a better beat maker or producer, not the equipment.

This is exactly why I bought your course Navie. I was legit going in circles watching tutorial after tutorial and not really understanding the premise and fundamentals of production as you said. When ppl make tutorials you can only really take their word that they know what they’re talking about. The more tutorials you watch though the more you can weed out the ppl that actually know what they’re talking about and those who don’t. You on the other hand always give us such quality information and explain things so well, which is why I didn’t hesitate to buy your course

I first used Ableton, then switched to FL Studio and noticed in the learning process that FL is more suitable for me.

@Koraxus Ah if you're more experienced then go ahead and follow your heart :)
Koraxus 2 aylar önce
@Pattarns Music Don't get me wrong, ableton has given me good results. But the very reason I choose ableton in the first place is because I looked down on fruityloops years ago. This was where I made the first mistake, not right now I'm deciding to give it a try. Knowing what I know now, upon using it for a long time and seeing other producers use other daws (like fl) I'm now considering FL may have been better for me.
Sativ 2 aylar önce
​@Koraxus That's no problem, you can download the demo version for free and try it first, if you like it, take it. I just have to tell you honestly that it is already a small change but all in all profitable. There are clearly advantages and disadvantages with both DAW's, e.g. adjusting return watches and sample speed or live recordings are easier in Ableton, but editing samples in the actual sense, access to actual effects and workflow, for example, are easier in Fl (I think).... Nevertheless, it is still your decision what is suitable for you.

@Koraxus you are making mistake #1 from this video. Ableton is good as hell and for every frustration you may have, somebody probably made a max4live device that solves your problem, just gotta know how to google it.
Koraxus 2 aylar önce
@Sativ I am still kinda hesitant to just dl fruity because I'm so used to ableton's workflow. But I know once I nail it down the minor inconvenience will be worth it. The randomized hat patterns FL allows you to do, along with swing control (which is far less practical in ableton) helps me get a drum start easier, which is often what I struggle the most to do. eq's are easier to use as well, and pianoroll generally appears to be better than ableton's sampler. I think all in all the best advantage is that I could produce good beats quicker. Lately I feel ableton just takes too much little unnecessary time which becomes cumulative at the end. This in turn causes a faster burnout.

@Koraxus there is a gentleman on youtube that breaks down how portishead did some of their music that is pretty informative you may like, i am very interested in learning a lot more about this genre also. I love Navie D's explanations and reality with people. I think the third step he mentions here he should go into more detail (where is the best place to learn fundamentals for NONdrummers that are getting into Drum Machine Programming seems like the idea. For example, I am pretty sure tamborine and shakers cannot be programmed to sound human no matter what tricks so this usually gets dedicated to samples.)

Would you be able to show how to make a BROCKHAMPTON type beat? I know those videos don't really teach people, but I have an idea.

(Doesn't need to be BROCKHAMPTON, I just think they have a unique sound)

Nobody who actually makes beats thinks you need an MPC to make beats. But with that said, if somebody created a sampler plugin that worked like the MPC 4K's OS and had the same workflow as that machine, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat.

Another thing I often find people do is they believe more in a beat is better, if you don’t have more than 15 loops your beat’s gonna suck, which is baloney. Sure if made well you can make some super intricate beats but it’s often best (especially as a beginner) to go sweet and simple.
Koraxus 2 aylar önce
@Finn McCool Yeah man this is something we often forget as producers wanting to show off our composition skills. This 6 loops kinda thing is more suited for progressive rock or trip hop, even drum n bass. What you describe is particularly harmful specially for people who learned producing to rap over their own beats. Doing extremely complex things causes brain fatigue which will lead you unable to write lyrics or continue further. Most of the beats I've made that I can actually use (or other rappers) are made in less than a hour.

@DJ_INstruments I how started doing it. I started with house music because it was a lil bit easier to follow. But I just loaded the song into Ableton get Paino vst play the song try and make the chords and just follow the cord structure.(listen to everything and how its layered!don't worry about selecting the right sounds) Use an eq to listen to just the mids/side bass drums etc. Load up some drums a follow the kicks claps snares and everything else u hear. Look at the audio and listen. See how delayed the kick might be etc. Try to listen for the groove in the drums while placing them. Just A/b what u have and compare it to the song and move up from there. I just went off but I like helping people

On rule 2. I believe Music is a gift you are giving to the world and no one likes crappy half baked gifts. So in agreement there. However if you are good enough to post every day then post away. I think it’s also bad if you spend too much time on one song get it super perfect then post it and then Crickets. I try to capture a moment and a vibe. Sometimes it’s hard to gauge a beat. Sometimes you have to move on or circle back to it and work on something else. But you should try to learn a new skill or concept every day.

Since Then i started my journey and used cubase, pro tools, reaper, milky tracker, renoise tracker, ableton live, Studio one and Maschine mk3. From my Perspective He is totally right but the usability of a tool can change the way of producing your ideas. If you work with a tracker, IT is totally different to live, cubase, pro tools and fl. You think music different. Working with Maschine is really fun, especialy If you learn some basic Finger drumming. AT the end, everything you Do are arranging frequencies over time in a context of rhytmic structure, so in 99,9 % of time the Tool does not matter. Just feel good with it and Do not let envy bitches Tell you, that your Tool in beeing creative is worse than the other.*

I think if you start off with fl studio you will be way more advantageous.

Or are successful people more likely to attribute more of their success to themselves, whereas unsuccessful people feel that they are in their situation despite their efforts?

NavieD.... I've had my windows Hp laptop.. Super cheap 279.00... I've been using this 2 years.. I'm pretty sure it wasn't made to make music... Also for head phones I've been using Hesh Evo skull candy's... For speakers I've used JBL Flip 5. I practiced with Reason 10.2.2 trial For a bit... Then got FL Studio trail mode as well.. Then I got the fire edition cause the controller.... It completely flipped my learning experience and didn't help me at all.. I've been saving... If you could get a new setup How should I go about it.. I want the full FL I don't want the beat of things I just want to do this right.. 🔥🤘🥀

i cant believe someone posted that "dont have mpc dont talk on j dilla" comment had me dying. i find this really funny because there is a lot of toxic people in hardware and daw camps, even though its been shown that platinum records and songs get made on cheap laptops and headphones with very little equipment. its not what you have its how you use it. i bet the guy that posted that would also think that a mpc from the 90s offers more than a modern pc or even a ni maschine. dense!

I don't even see how you can post music literally everyday anyways unless you're producing full-time. I guess it also depends on what genre you're producing and since you're referring to "beats" I can imagine you're referring hip-hop/trap/other sub-genres under that umbrella, I feel like those types of beats take less overall time to make compared other genres. Correct me if I'm wrong though. I have a full-time job plus trying to make music mostly for fun on the side, so I'm lucky if I can complete a few tracks in a month, let alone one track per day.

Naw , I listen to timbo … he said FL and Ableton are good daws . He said Logic sounds bad . This is coming from a mega producer , thats speaking the truth . I used a MV 8000 beat machine and I used FL 3 when I was little , that was 2003 ! I have notice different daws and machine has different sound frequencies , some some thick and some sound thin .

I agree with the mpc comment, tho. MPC is a different beast, sound, and swing that cannot be duplicated

I own a 4K and I'm going to have to disagree. The only advantage of the 4K (or any MPC really) is just how it changes your workflow so you come up with different ideas.

I can replicate it almost pretty well in FL I’ve found it’s the mpc grid that helps with the swing more then the swing function it self

Dumb idea #4. Your bass should only be 808, sub sine, or a sample. Make a hip hop beat with edm bass, play with overtones, it's fun

That why I fucked with that classic dj mustard sound, those bass stabs where the shizzle. Check out enrgy beats from Michigan, very unique sound imo, leans into distorted textures in a similar way to Ronny j, tho a little tamer haha

I think the understanding behind dilla mpc talk was banter or an open ended statement. I get it, what the person was probably saying is that the way dilla used the mpc was unique to what other producers did at the time. And if you don’t understand the pioneering that dilla made with the mpc, don’t come after him. But the question is come after what about him? I don’t think it was about you need this to be better. But I do think the locus of control statement is needed with many producers. Countless people retain the same ways hoping that the external will pick them up when it’s them that needs to work harder!

Most TRshow tutorials are made by a bunch of "producers" who just really want to flex their Young Thug type beat making skills. Very few people on YT actually help actual producers.

Peace ur content is great Mr. D I HAVE A MPC LIVE and a MPC STUDIO 2, FL 21, PROTOOLS and STUDIO ONE 5 that don't mine 💩like 808's tuned and in key. Ur melody sound great but the drums r not sounding or placed properly or tuned to ur liking. I'm a beginner but have a gd ear for music if it do not fit and the sound is off it's not the DAW or wt EQUIPMENT u have it's all about fixing and figuring it out. Peace....

I didnt watch the full video, and I am not biased but putting one philosophical idea onto a spectrum is ignorance. When I say this it’s coming from someone who knows apt about both philosophy and music. And you think you know both but you have not articulated either. There’s a big difference in making something work vs being articulate about it. You make yourself work as a TRshowr who makes corky video about musics and stupidly mix psychology into it, you articulate when you think about yourself when you read this comment. I was about to tell you something precious at the end but thought about ending with a bullshit.
